This jacket is well constructed of quality material. I was somewhat disturbed to put the jacket on for the first time. It fit very snug. I'm 6' tall 190 pounds the large is tight across the shoulders and chest. The sleeve openings are also tight and nonadjustable. The torso length seems fine. I've worn the piece in temperature from 50-20 degrees F. It is not good at the colder end of that spectrum unless you are active then it is decent. The only draw back is it doesn't breath well enough if too active, The jacket does have good wind resistance and decent water resistance. I have yet to wear it as an insulating layer.This may be the best use for it.

Great shirt! The material is strong and durable,and quick drying. Sweat wicks away and evaporates quickly. The chest pocket configuration is nice.The right side has adeep zippered main pocket with a divided outer pocket. The left is one main pocket and a half pocket with a bellow. There is also a small pocket on the left sleeve. All Three have hook and loop fastened flaps.The back of the shirt has a meshed lined vent that helps air circulate.

I've been a fan of North Face for quite a while now, and the Apex Bionic jacket is one of my favorite everyday-wear products. It's comfortable, warm (in cool to cold weather), water resistant,(not waterproof) ,blocks the wind and looks good. It cleans up pretty easily, too, and is very well constructed.

I think of it as a slightly-overpriced casual-wear jacket.
My only complaints would be the lack of interior pockets. Also, the lining tends to stick to garments worn under it, so depending on what I'm wearing, the sleeves get pushed up when I'm putting the jacket on.

Overall, it's a great everyday jacket.

A flexible and supportive shoe with ample cushioning. They are light, comfortable and breathe well. The forefoot is just thin enough to feel the trail and may let an occasional stinger through. For me they fit true to size. I typically wear Asics and made the transition without any issues. Overall they have a similar ride, but this is a slightly beefier shoe. They have a soft upper that is more supportive than the Asics The lacing system works fine and is highly adjustable allowing a semi-customizable fit. It has little benefit over traditional lacing in my book, but it works. The out sole has performed well on wet rocky Pennsylvania trails.

Great tool for the bicycle. It tracks miles, speed altitude, and it maps the course. Upload the days event to Garmin and track progress. Download routes from the web and gps will follow turn by turn.You can program mutiple bikes and riders into one unit.

Seems tight and the sleeves are short. Comfortable as every fleece I've ever worn. Thin, lightweight and good insulating properties.This fleece is nothing special it is the same as all other micros. I've been a fan of TNF products for years but this one is over priced even at closeout pricing.
